People born under this sign are renowned for their charm. Although easily angered, they appear to be cool, calm, and completely under control. Their ability to hide anger and discontent is a valuable asset.

Rat people have a great deal of ambition and integrity, and unbelievable persistence. They are also inclined to be fussy about petty things.

Naturally thrifty, they have the ability to save money (and can be stingy, too). However, love brings out their generosity. They often feel they must guard against someone who doesn't love them back, and, in their eagerness to impress, spend everything they manage to save.

They like to live well and are good to themselves. Since rat people adore gossip, their friends are sometimes of short duration.
